Funky Finds Holiday Show

I had a wonderful handmade show this weekend!  And after painting from 9pm to 3am every night for the past 2 weeks... it was totally worth it!  There were some amazing, talented artists and I met a lot of wonderful new customers.  It is always so rewarding to actually get to meet your customers and see that someone other than me loves my little guys! :) 

I like to create a few new items that have not been listed in my shop for each show.  I am trying to get them listed now as fast as I can but if you see something you like and don't see the listing... contact me!

FYI... If you've been planning on ordering for the holidays... better hurry.... because of my amazing customers my production calender is BOOKED, so the last day to order for holiday delivery is NOVEMBER 20!

Cowtown Indie Bazzar

I had a wonderful time this Saturday at the Cowtown Indie Bazaar!  Meet lots of amazing artist and great customers!  It is always a lot of work to create a whole "mini" store for a show (especially when you run a made to order business and have two very active little ones) ... but it is always worth it in the end!!!  

Here's my little booth.   

Here is my new sign.... I just love it!  I might change a few things if I were to make it again... but overall it is exactly what I wanted!  My brother cut out wooden triangles (12" from top to tip) .  I painted & sealed them.... then drilled two small  holes through the top of each and put a small gauge wire through.  Next, I strung them on very rustic cord, clamping down the wire on each to keep them evenly spaced out!

Always my most popular item with little & big guys!

Precious new peg bags that will be in my shop soon.

Check Out Shop Vacation Dates

Just a little update as to when I will be putting the shop in 'vacation mode' this Fall! 

I am going to be in 2 indie handmade shows this Fall and it is a lot of work for one little mama (me) to put together a whole shop of hand painted goodies.... especially since I normally have no stock of my items and everything is made to order.  So... I will be closing a few random days/week in order to get ready for the shows.  The good thing is that anything I don't sale at the shows will be put into my Etsy shop in the "In Stock" section and shipped out immediately.  So check it out after Nov 13th.

SHOP VACA DATES: (not set in stone yet)
Oct 10 - 15 (prep for Cowtown Bazaar)
Nov 8 - 13 (prep for Funky Finds)
Dec 12- Jan 12 (my actual vacation)

Also, the last day to order with guaranteed delivery by Dec 24 is NOV 20!
